Xperia ZU Togari Notification Panel Screenshots Leaked

The screen size looks gigantically large ūüėõ It seems impossible to operate Xperia Togari from one hand. Person who posted on XDA claims that Xperia ZU is still not the final name of the phone. The black theme new Xperia wallpaper put on the Xperia ZU Togari homescreen looks a bit different from what came in the recent Xperia 2013 lineup.

Certainly It will feature Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and many new Xperia tweaks. A new Xperia Home launcher can be seen, notice the “menu” button, in the android 4.1.2 jelly bean, Xperia provided it as square consisting of 12 small white squares and in this new android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean home launcher it appeared as 9 small dots comprising a square. Icon of “Playstation” mobile seems a bit different also.

Soon we will see the official listing of this beast Xperia ZU Togari hopefully.

A few days ago we saw a press invite of Sony in the Germany which will be held on 25 June and Xperia Z Ultra pic leaked with cat on top with some specifications.

By looking at the photo leaked above, it is seen that the device or Xperia Z Ultra is definitely a phablet, with power button at side, earphone jack, volume up and down buttons just similar to Xperia Z. Camera dedicated button is also there at the bottom side. It looks very thin from side, we posted it’s dimension as¬†179.2 x 92 x 6.5mm.
